In faith and hope, we come to You and confess our weakness and vulnerability.
At this time of our fragility, fear, and death, we come to You.
Make us well, and we will be well,
Be our Saviour and we will be safe,
For us, You are our hope.
We believe that You are our strength; You are our shield;
In our helplessness, we trust that You are our refuge.
In our vulnerability, You are our shelter.
In the midst of darkness, You give us light and rays of hope.
In our pain and suffering, You give us the ability to live in hope with courage; and the wisdom to overcome all difficulties.
God of compassion, make us to be concerned for all those who are suffering due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
God of hope, heal us, protect us, and sustain us by Your divine grace.
Dr Mathews George Chunakara
